I’m pleased to announce that I’m joining Yahoo as SEO Lead.
At Digital DD, we puzzled through the strategies behind some of the biggest SEO companies out there. But Yahoo is an order of magnitude bigger. They have over a hundred million monthly uniques; if I improve things by 1%, I’ve affected the lives of a million people. It’s hard to get that elsewhere.
And I’ve been impressed by the team Yahoo has (and keeps building!) in order to take on the news business.
So what happens to Digital DD? In the short term, not much:
In August, I wrote about 33,000 words for the newsletter. That’s not sustainable. But it’s also a good sign that I like writing about this stuff. (And our reader feedback indicates that you’re enjoying it too—send your feedback!)
I’m pleased—amazed is a better word—with what we’ve accomplished at Digital Due Diligence. In four months of work, we’ve built up a franchise, made friends, made enemies, and worked on some great projects with amazing clients. I, personally, have learned a whole lot from the process. Nearly everyone I’d want to thank is already a subscriber to this newsletter, so a quick and general thanks is in order.
And rest assured, I intend to keep the Digital Due Diligence newsletter as peppy and pugnacious as ever, even on a tighter schedule. So please continue to email me your tips, critiques, and suggestions. If I had to sum up Digital Due Diligence (the newsletter, the service, and the company), I’d say: We like to figure things out. And that’s never going to stop.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
